Defense Lawyer Seeks to Clear His Name – and Accuser's
(Beijing) – Amid a wave of appeals seeking to overturn verdicts handed out during an anti-mafia campaign in Chongqing is one curious case: a defense lawyer is seeking to not only clear his name, but that of a former client whose testimony sent him to jail.
On November 2, Beijing lawyer Li Zhuang confirmed on Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, that he would represent Gong Gangmo in his appeal. Gong's testimony that Li coached him into making false claims led to the lawyer being jailed for 18 months.
